God's grace for a life of godliness - 2 Peter 1:1-11
This week we begin a series in 2 Peter. We see that as we know Jesus, as we dive deeply into his goodness, his glory, and his precious promised return, God's power flows into us bringing salvation, godliness, and assurance.
Family Matters - Genesis 48 & 49
Today we come to the end of our series in Genesis, and we revisit the family that becomes the nation of Israel. The sons of Israel leave much to be desired as role models, and yet, these are the ones who the Lord calls "my people". We see today that God's people, both then and now, are those saved by grace as they are enfolded into his promises and given a future.
Joseph: The Lord Saves - Genesis 37-50
We continue with the series in Genesis and come to the story of Joseph. It is often the case that Joseph is held up as a great example to follow, he works hard, he flees temptation, and he forgives those who wronged him. But before we apply Joseph's example to our lives, let's first see how he points us to Jesus - the true saviour of the world.
Jacob: The Lord Blesses - Genesis 25-35
As we continue in our series in Genesis, we come to the story of Jacob (later named "Israel"). We see that the whole of Jacob's life is about struggling to obtain the blessing of God. As we follow the contents of his story, we see a person transformed as he discovers that to know God and his grace is what it means to be truly blessed.
Isaac: The Lord Provides - Genesis 22:1-19
As God's covenant promises faithfully unfold, we come to one of the hardest passages of Genesis to stomach - the call to sacrifice Isaac. This seems wildly unreasonable and a sabotage of God's faithful provision. Nevertheless, we will see that faith in God's promises and provision revolutionises our reason when God provides himself in Jesus.
Abraham: The Lord Promises - Gen 12-15
Today we hear the history-shaping promises that God made to Abraham. Today, we share in these promises as we put our faith in the true son of Abraham, who came to fulfill the promises and bring blessings to the end of the earth.
